Description

This is not a particularly memorable climb, but it does provide an easy way to the top of the formation where TRs can be set for other routes if desired. It is a crack but there are plenty of face moves to augment it as well.

Location

This route ascends the obvious crack on the right hand side of the east face of the formation. The crack is behind the large boulder that hosts the route Political Asylum. One can either start FMG in a small chimney behind the boulder, or scramble up left of the boulder to a nice belay ledge. The latter approach starts on easy face moves to reach the crack.

Protection

A few small to medium cams will do it. Make a trad anchor at the top. Rap off of the two-bolt anchor to climber's left at the top of H.R. Hardman.
